Unless you just want him in on the PP, about the only way to do that is supplant Hodgson or Ennis (bad idea), or put him in the top 6 on a wing (also seems like a bad idea with the way our top 2 lines have been playing since the end of last season).

I'm sure Ruff understands that he won't get the offensive opportunities he would if he were in the top 6. I think he can certainly succeed in a third line role in his first season as a pro. It's not like he's playing with scrubs out there, like I'm seeing mentioned quite often.

Agreed. I still don't like how we enter the zone, but once we're there, we look pretty good honestly.
